Fellow Catholics and Readers,

We very rarely post appeals for help on CCC, however, this set of circumstances struck me profoundly as a father of four myself (with one on the way). One of our own, a good Catholic family, has suffered a tremendous loss and I am asking for your help to ease the burden they face.

A Catholic father of seven lovely children was traveling with two of them when he suddenly collapsed and passed away late at night. This family is part of our local Catholic community and my family knows them personally from a former parish and as a family friend. Please consider helping them with your prayers, and if you can, with a donation at the following GoFundMe page.
